Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Ostuni - Sessana Grande

6 Bedroom (2 aircon) luxury trullo with 12x7 metre pool in secluded countrysid

This Trullo is a unique character property that will make you holiday special. It is one of the most beautiful and impressive properties in the area. The reconstruction has been carried out with particular care, preserving the unique feel and character of this typical rural Puglian building. It is made up of a number of whitewashed trulli, including a traditional flat coned ‘Saracens’ trullo, and a number of ”lamie” stone buildings with vaulted ceilings. The buildings cluster around a beautiful stone courtyard which is surrounded by flowers, fruit and olive trees. The courtyard resembles an outside ‘living room’ area with a traditional wood oven and a charcoal grill.Leading from the courtyard to the garden is a wisteria covered pergola with a stunning stone table, from which diners enjoy a wonderful view of the grounds. There is also 12 x 7metre ! swimming pool, which for the safety of children can be gated off.

local towns: The area itself is regarded as a prime location embedded in an undulating rural landscape of olive, fruit and almond trees. The location of “Sessana” is perfect for easy access to all the nearby towns and the seaside. The nearest beach is a 15 minutes drive away. Views of the sea and the coast can already be enjoyed from the “white town” of Ostuni which is only five minutes away from Sessana. Ostuni is without a doubt, the most impressive town in the area, it is lively and buzzing in the summer time and has a great number of eating ad drinking establishments including one of Puglia’s only Japanese restaurants. The old town with its two prominent churches straddles the top of a hill commanding some of the most magnificent views over the ancient olive trees that “carpet” the plain leading to the coast. Ceglie Messapica is equidistant from “Sessana” and has a very different feel to the more lively and upbeat Ostuni. Ceglie, as it is called by the locals, is a small town with the standard.

History: Trullo “Sessana” is situated down a dry stone wall bordered ‘contrada’, off the main road between Ostuni and Ceglie Messapica. This ‘contrada’, like many others in the ‘Vale d’Itria’ was important as it was situated in the immediate vicinity of the two main centres of agricultural production the “Masserie’ of Sessana Grande and Sessana Piccola. From the 1700’s such Masserie represented the centres of the social and economic fabric of the Puglian Countryside

Grounds and buildings: Grounds, buildings and courtyard. This property was converted into a luxury home in 2001 by a well known Italian family. It is one of the most beautiful and impressive properties in the area. The reconstruction has been carried out with particular care, preserving the unique feel and character of this typical rural Puglian building. It is made up of a number of whitewashed trulli, including a traditional flat coned ‘Saracens’ trullo, and a number of ”lamie” stone buildings with vaulted ceilings. The buildings cluster around a beautiful stone courtyard which is surrounded by flowers, fruit and olive trees. The courtyard resembles an outside ‘living room’ area with a traditional wood oven and a charcoal grill.Leading from the courtyard to the garden is a wisteria covered pergola with a stunning stone table, from which diners enjoy a wonderful view of the grounds. These are bordered by old dry stone walls. There is also 12 x 7metre ! swimming pool.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We were a group of 11 at the max with 5 children under the age of 4 and we were all extremely happy and loved the villa and the surrounding area. The villa was totally child friendly and Dieter, Pietro and Francesca were very helpful accommodating us all. We got some great restaurant recommendations and have become big fans of the area to the point that we will definitely return. The villa is very spacious providing 2 families with ample (own) space and has all the necessary amenities to make the stay very comfortable. We loved the fact that you are not looked upon and that you had your own privacy without being out of touch of Ceglie and Ostuni.
It is utterly charming and cannot be recommended enough.
Thank you all.

Trullo Sessana Grande

  • 5 out of 5
" Ours was a group of friends and family with an age range of 13 to 62.

We had a marvellous time; your property was the most perfect place for our party that we've ever stayed in as everyone was close but still had their own 'space'. We appreciated all the work that has gone into the trullo after exploring the area and decided that yours was probably one of the finest. We found the beds very comfortable, even the sofa bed was brilliant and the whole complex is thoughtfully laid out to provide outstanding comfort to guests in a magically peaceful setting.

Thank you, especially for the arrangements with Pietro and Francesca; without them I doubt that we would have found either the supermarket or the trullo, given that sadly, none of us speaks Italian and we arrived with only a few hours to get provisions in before everywhere shut for the Easter holiday.

Although we have singularly and collectively travelled all over the world, none of us have ever been to such an interesting and enchanting area. We have never seen palm trees, fruit tree blossom, pine trees, cacti and orange trees bearing fruit all in the same area at the same time. Added to this the sight of the trulli is a marvel! It was one of the best holidays we've had together and each one of us can't recommend the experience too highly. (Between us there are about 400 photos circulating Facebook at the moment!).

Thank you Robert and Dieter, we really hope we can make a return trip soon.

With many thanks and fond memories.

Trullo Sessana

  • 5 out of 5
A quick email to thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home in Puglia. The house notes refer to Trullo Sessana as "Our little corner of paradise..." it certainly is that.

We had an absolutely wonderful time enjoying the pool and the trullo, family dinners at your outdoor table, evening drinks in lively italian squares, the occassional trip to the beach, the local restaurants, and the sightseeing: Lecce, Ostuni, Martina Franca, the caves near Alborobello, Locorontondo - we know them all, and more.

You have done trully stunning things to the Trullo: it is so tastefully furnised and beautifully restored. Clearly you and your family have an eye for detail. Everything about the property was perfect and worked perfectly.

Although we thanked Pietro and Francesca on numerous occassions (with our rather poor spoken italian), please do not miss the opportunity to thank them again from us. They were friendly, helpful, went about their business with total efficiency, but most important of all, smiled constantly and made us very welcome in Puglia.

The house notes asked for suggestions as to how the Trullo can be improved: I think it is pretty much perfect. I would only say that the pictures on the internet now look a few months old and do not do it justice: the Trullo is (even) more attractive than the pictures suggest. I make this observation somewhat reluctantly, as the last thing I want to happen if for others to discover it !!

Thank you again Dieter. If you are looking to rent the place again, we may well be very interested.

With best wishes

Trullo Sessana Grande

  • 5 out of 5
We just wanted to say that the villa was all that was promised. It fitted
the bill perfectly. We loved the Trulli section, the bedrooms were very
comfortable, the pool excellent and the weather just wonderful, a great time
was had by us all. It was a holiday to remember especially now the
Australian members of the family have returned to the southern hemisphere.
Pietro and Francesca were very helpful and friendly and introduced us to
best coffee/croissant house in CEGLIA MESSAPINA a great hit with us all!

Thank you so much we hope to return one day.

Ganz tolles Haus

  • 5 out of 5
In diesem Haus ist an alles gedacht. Wir waren mit 2 Familien dort.
4Ew und 5 Kinder. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Jeder hatte sein Bad und es ist auch sehr grün, was in dieser Gegend wo es sehr heiss ist nicht oft der Fall ist. Jede Nacht wird dort das Grundstück bewässert. Die Feigen von den vielen Bäumen schmecken wunderbar und auch die vielen Mandeln hatten es unseren Kindern angetan. In einer Woche hatten wir nicht jede Ecke dort gesehen, weil es wirklich riesig ist. Die Strände in der Umgebung sind toll und auch

der wunderschöne Ort Ostuni ( La Citta Bianca) . Auch Alberobello ist eine
Besichtigungstour auf jeden Fall wert. Wir waren dort abends. Besser wäre
tagsüber. Die Vermieter und auch die Verwalterin und ihr Mann waren sehr
nett. Als wir dort ankamen, waren alle Betten hübsch bezogen und der
Kühlschrank war gefüllt. Seife und alles was man für die ersten Tage
braucht, war alles da. Danke Fam. Siani NRW

Ostuni is one of the most stunning cities in southern Italy famous for the dazzling effect of its whitewashed houses. It is a genuine and charming example of Mediterranean architecture.

The city of Ostuni is a series of levels, staircases, small roads, alleys, arches. Hints of the Middle Ages are at hand in every corner, in every view to the sea, in the portal of a palace, in the walls of a convent or the front of a church.

The brightness of its whitewashed houses, set against the pink-tinged brown of its principal monument, makes the town stand out in the green of the surrounding area. This happy combination of the natural and the man made has made Ostuni one of the most attractive cities in the region and an essential part of any tour of Italy.

This leads to the second living area with a TV/DVD player, a room with a wonderful alcove seating bench, covered with cushions. The next passageway takes you to the 3rd living room area which is used by the owners of the house as a play room for children; it has a large comfortable sofa bed and another TV/DVD player.
